About Me: A feminist first and foremost, I find that my life is defined by "giving a damn". I can't stand injustice - so I get behind causes, I go on demos and marches, and try to make even the tiniest difference to the status quo. That's probably why I'm a campaigner - and at the moment am working on CARE UK's campaign on gender based violence in conflict zones - so would encourage you all to sign the petition! Well.. what did you expect? That I wouldn't brazenly ask you to take action? www.careinternational.org.uk

Good to meet you all, am excited about this new opportunity to meet fellow folk who give a damn ;-)

My Passions: standing up to injustice. equality.

My Challenges: keeping my mouth shut!

My Vision for the Future: a world where inequality has been eradicated and we all have the same access to opportunities and resources - not an entirely realistic vision

My Areas of Expertise: gender, development, disability, campaigning

I love that you have stepped right in and advocated for an end to gender based violence in conflict zones. It would be wonderful if you could expand upon the work that you do and share with us some of CARE's experiences and success stories. If there is anything I can help you with, please let me know and I will try to steer you in the right direction.

To get started, you can share your ideas and dreams by writing in your journal, reading other member's journals and offering comments, and joining groups to participate in the discussions. Take a moment to browse through our group directory (http://www.worldpulse.com/pulsewire/groups) which is full of amazing voices who have come together around a single topic or interest. You might also consider starting your own group where you can build a powerful network bringing together PulseWire members with similar visions who want to share ideas or actions.

I look forward to reading more from you and I hope that you will find this to be a positive experience. Janice PulseWire Community Director
